According to the Irish Times,
Vincent has been cast in the film, THE PRICE OF DESIRE, to be
directed by Mary McGuckian. Eileen Gray, the long-neglected
Irish avant-garde designer, who spent most of her life in France, is
finally to be celebrated in film with Winona Ryder cast in the
starring role. And producer-director McGuckian knows exactly how to
present it – as a richly deserved "apology" to Gray by the great
modernist Swiss-born architect, Le Corbusier, played by Vincent.
Filming will start next summer, with a budget of €10 million.
McGuckian intends that Eileen Gray will be the heroine, with Corb
cast as the villain. You can read the full article here.
If you haven't seen the VPA's
new Home Page, check it out. I have
been updating and adding more material this winter so you may see
several new additions to the web site. I continue to keep pages
clean and free of advertisements and, hopefully, information is
easily accessible and the navigation throughout the site user
friendly. It's been 13 years since I made the decision to create a
library of Vincent's work and over the years, it's been a pleasure
to see his career flourish.
Looking ahead to this year's
projects, we know Vincent will be doing his wife's film in March.
His film, "Alone in Berlin" has been put on hold for a
while but apparently, changes have been made which have pushed the
shooting date to September. Originally, the film was going to be
shot in Germany with German actors but now it will be done in
English. Presently, I have no information on the new location or the
lead actors. I still haven't come across a release date for CE
QUE LE JOUR DOIT A LA NUIT, which was filmed last summer. The
film page has been completed and I've
found at least one photo of Vincent in the role of Juan Rucillo.
Based on the movie still, you can surmise that he plays a wealthy
Vincent's daughter, Iman,
who turns 13 this May, has indicated to her parents that she would
like to become an actress. Last year she starred in her mother's
film, "Un baiser papillon". She is now being
represented by an acting agency so perhaps we'll see more
of her in the future. If you click on the photo below, the link will
take you to Iman's page.
The latest photos were taken on January 25th. In
the middle of the Paris Haute couture fashion-week, Liliane Jossua
hosted the Valentino crew to celebrate the exclusive edition of the
VaVaVoom it-bag, the "So black", only avalible at Montaigne Market
boutique. The party was a success with the DJ supplying ambience for
the event while guests enjoyed the buffet by Roberta. The place was
embellished by the presence of other celebs as well - Laetitia
Casta, Johnny Hallyday, Clotilde Courau, Else Zylberstein, and Jean
and Zofia Reno. The third photo shows Karine with actress Marine
January 17th Vincent attended the premiere of his latest film,
MA PREMIERE FOIS, at the
cinéma UGC de Bercy in Paris. Check out one of the
film's video clips featuring a scene with Vincent. Film
critic Coralie Agnimel of Abus de Cine predicts the ultra romantic
drama might become the new cult film among adolescent girls. The two
lead stars - Esther Comar and Martin Cannavo - put in decent
performances that reveal the emotions and feelings of first love.
Ms. Agnimel acknowledges the film's poetic aspects, but ultimately
finds the film far too naive. Yet, with its appealing romanticism,
it could appeal to younger and more sentimental audiences. The story
was inspired by the director's relationship with her husband (now
deceased) showing how love can disrupt a life.
Karine's next film,
Le Père Noël est
originally scheduled to begin shooting in Senegal this month, but
the date has now been moved to March. It is a comedy about a blended
family starring the two men in Karine's life - Gerard Depardieu and
Vincent. In a recent interview, Vincent described the film - "This
is a film about human relationships and they're bicultural. The
message is the same wherever you go - we're all the same."
I've added quite a bit of new
content to the VPA. There are several new photos in the
Karine & Children gallery
as well as more photos of Carla Bruni and Jacqueline Bisset in the
Friends gallery. Here are a couple from
the LA premiere of "Valmont" back in 1989. Love Vincent in long
